Design an end-to-end HR Solution

Context —

As a UX/UI Team Lead at XING, I manage a creative and talented team of Designers, Researchers and writers distributed across Hamburg and Barcelona offices. Defining E-Recruiting products such as the XING Job Board, XING ReferralManager and XING active sourcing tool: XING TalentManager; our B2B Saas for HR Recruiters

Thanks to XING E-Recruiting's HR solutions, you can find top new hires for your business by targeting potential candidates rather than waiting for applications to reach your inbox.



Address the right people directly: Find and contact talented candidates that match your requirements and boost your company.

Apply special recruiting filters when looking for candidates and see whether a candidate is interested in a new role and how many profile visits they received. View relevant candidates profile details and send messages to non-contacts



The perfect couple for your employer branding. Present your company on the two largest careers platforms in German-speaking countries, XING and kununu. 

Showcase your business with your logo, images and videos. Present interesting information, such as current vacancies and employers, to profile visitors. Also, XING members can indicate their interest in working at your company. 




Post your job offer where you can reach your target group and boost your reach. See all of your company's live, draft, archived, and deactivated job ads on XING, along with valuable facts and figures. You can share all this with your team, too.




In order to keep our UI consistency cross-products, to speed up our time to market, and to reduce costs, we use an internal Design System build in REACT.js and using Atomic Design mindset as a reference. We see the creation of a Design System as an incremental process, adopting the basic building blocks (aka Design Tokens) and then moving to more complex parts of components. 

"Not everything is (or must be) part of the system,
but the system should be permanently improved"
